MAME (an acronym of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is an emulator application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten. The aim of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines; the ability to actually play the games is considered "a nice side effect".
This item is a collection of the full ROMset for version 0.149 of MAME.

This massive, complete collection is extremely important to videogame preservation and inspired me to start making working sets of my own.
Incredible contribution, Jason. Thanks for this!

This is a 7z file, not a ZIP
Use PeaZip. It also takes an extremely long time to unzip.

This is the version of MAME/UME as used in OpenEmu, meaning the zips can be dropped in without compatability issues. The collection can be browsed online to pull out the items you want to use, or you can grab the entire zip IF you're using a 64-bit zip program that can handle zip files > 4GB to decompress.

Bad zip file
I downloaded (and took a huge hunk out of my monthly download allotment from my ISP), and found out that the .zip file was invalid. Using Ubuntu, so it's not like I'm using some flaky third party ad supported archiving utility.
